The early years dragged a bit but an honest, frank memoir. Approached the book with an open mind. His work, some excellent work, some dogs but a body of work that is on the whole something to be proud of as a filmmaker. The fact that so many actors, yes including females want to work with Allen is telling. Now to the Farrow years. An eye opener. I learnt how one sided the narrative has in the media from Farrow and Ronan when Allen would not reply, doesn’t use social media and hasn’t blown his own trumpet...well he has in his band. Allen’s worst sin is being happily married for 25 years to a woman Soon-Yi many years his junior. A good read, it should be read with an open mind and you will find facts verified by third parties that you would never have believed. I wish Allen and Soon-Yi the best.
